"Massachusetts in Washington: New Faces, Weakened Clout?"
Discussion with Jim O’Sullivan, The Boston Globe's online politics editor. Co-sponsored by the Rappaport Institute for Greater Boston, the Institute of Politics, and the Joan Shorenstein Center on the Press, Politics and Public Policy.
Jim O’Sullivan is the Boston Globe’s incoming online politics editor and writes the Political Intelligence blog. He is the former White House Correspondent for the National Journal. Previously, he worked at State House News Service and the Dorchester Reporter. O’Sullivan will draw on his experience in both DC and Boston to examine the changes in state’s delegation and how that impacts its influence within the context of the current political climate. Additionally, he'll discuss how Massachusetts in recent years has been a harbinger for national trends both political and policy-related.
